The cartons are recyclable but the tea sachets are not. Unfortunately, we have not been able to find a viable recyclable alternative to our sachets yet. Our current packaging preserves the potency of our Tea Crystals by protecting them from light, temperature and moisture. Their environmental impact, however, is still less than the combination of teabags and their wrappers. Teabag wrappers are also not recyclable if they contain aluminum foil (as most premium teabags do).
